We specialize in small group day tours to Mount Rainier National Park. We pick you up at your South Puget Sound hotel or local Park-n-Ride in our clean and comfortable touring van. With our small group size, we can cater the day to your desires and offer more time at locations of your choice. During your tour you will have the opportunity to hike in old growth forests, feel the mist of thundering waterfalls, look for pika, marmot, fox, deer, bear and other wildlife; learn about glaciers and native trees, hear about the colorful people who pioneered the creation of the park, and of course, stand in awe at the sight of magnificent Mt. Rainier!

Discover Nature / Diann is the dream guide... everything you could wish for: local, informed, considerate, prepared, unfailingly positive and friendly. I can't imagine a better experience. I was initially reluctant to join a tour because I am used to exploring on my own, but she showed us spots we never would have seen without her. When the weather went... More

Diann was a great tour guide. She gave me exact directions on how to get to the pick up location from my hotel and went out of her way to make sure I got on the quickest bus at the end of the day. She was very knowledgeable and you can tell she loves what she does. This was the... More

We chose to book with Discover Nature so that we could see Mt Rainier in a more personalized way. We were extremely pleased with the results. Diann went out of her way to make our day an amazing experience, We got to hike several trails, see beautiful waterfalls, and eat lunch outdoors sitting on rocks by a stream. You can... More

My cousin and I decided to take Diann Sheldon's Discover Nature tour to Mt. Rainier after canceling a visit last year due to rain. I'm so glad we chose this tour! When Diann picked us up at our Tacoma hotel, we learned that we were the only guests that day as the other group had moved to the next day.... More

Diann's tour was absolutely incredible and one of a kind. She was extremely knowledgable, flexible and thoughtful. We saw locations on the Mt. in just one day that we could have spent days seeking out on our own. This tour is so worth the money, especially if you're staying in Seattle. You'll get to see highlights of beautiful national park... More

We had the most fantastic day with Diann! She is extremely knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the park and the mountain. This is a great way to immerse yourself in Rainier National Park. The day was relaxing and never felt rushed but we saw so many great sights! Diann even went the extra mile (literally) so that we... More

Diann was a great guide. She was very knowledgeable about the park, it's plants and wildlife. It was a joy to share the trails and lovely sights with her. My favorite part was having lunch near the river at the base of the mountain. What a glorious view! This is a perfect day trip. A must do!

If you plan to be in Mt. Rainier, take this guided tour with Diann. It was so much fun and informative. She took us on hikes off the beaten path and was so knowledgeable about everything relating to the park and mountain. Packed a lunch and ate in a shady trail. Relaxing, she didn't rush us and waited patiently while... More
